Join us on April 13, 2013 for the second run of the Manila Business Leadership Seminar. It is a gathering of students and young professionals to know more about themselves and tap their potential to be empowered and purpose-driven individuals.
Saddleback Manila is bringing together the brightest minds in business with speakers like Boris Joaquin, Seasoned Management & Marketing Professional and Ron Gess, Associate Director for Verizon Technical Services, who is flying in from California. Damon Harrison, who will be coming in with Ron, will conduct a SHAPE Discovery session – a fun self-discovery activity. Of course, we will be showing a message from Pastor Rick Warren!
Boris Joaquin is one of the country’s top-ranked public speaker and trainer for leadership programs and other soft skills. Boris started his career as a personal assistant to the owner and president of a big and thriving advertising agency right after college. He was later on assigned as an account executive of major accounts, and eventually became one of the agency’s senior account managers. After his stint in advertising, he served in leadership positions for consumer goods companies and a publishing group, for which he became the Vice President for Marketing at the age of only 28. Presently, he’s the Managing Director of Copylandia Office Systems Corporation. He is also the Managing Partner of Team Meta, a convergence group partnering with industry mavens in the areas of online marketing, mobile and web app development, and other online needs. Boris is also the Master Trainer and Country Representative of the Lead Like Jesus Training Program and the main facilitator of the transformational leadership program, Servant Leader Workshop. He also shares his expertise in the fields of marketing, customer service, social entrepreneurship, fund raising, and corporate social responsibility as a speaker in conferences and for various corporations and NGOs.

It would be nice to attend the seminar but I live in Dumaguete 🙂 Good luck! I actually read Rick Warren’s The Purpose Drive Life 🙂
Thank you Joy! I pray we can bring this event and many others to different parts of PH when the time comes. Wow, that’s awesome! He’s our pastor 😀
Wow! The event is for free-that’s one of the best part, however I already have prearranged schedule for this date/time.
We’ll do this event again, just that it’s another set of speakers. April 13 is a busy Saturday, as well as the 20th. :3
Interesting seminar… would love to join but I hope they’ll also conduct a seminar here in Davao. 🙂
Praying we’ll be able to do activities outside Manila! 🙂

Looking forward to meet you, Sir Ver! 🙂
It’s nice to have this leadership seminars as its a chance to socialize and internalize the are of leading people.
This is a good opportunity because it’s free! Seminars like this are usually very expensive.
This is great, I wanted to attend this kind of seminars but sadly I am so far away and going to Manila will be very costly. Hope many will attend to this event because I am sure they will learn a lot from the speakers.
Interesting, this seminar is a great opportunity to those who wants to be a business leader someday.
I’m not born a leader.
I usually go with the team.
It’s the willingness to exert effort to lead others.
I’d love to go but it’s conflicting my regular work so I couldn’t make it to be part of the event. I wish there’s still next time.
Depends on the success of this one, that will determine if we’ll have the next seminar asap or not 🙂
this is a once only knocking opportunity, especially for young leaders of todays. .i’ll go for it. .
The best thing in life are LIBRE! haha
It’s tomorrow! And the seminar’s just a few blocks away from my office! I better sign up now! Thanks Dems 🙂

This is tomorrow na, goodluck! Sorry I wont be able to attend, I still have work tomorrow..
Hehe, next time Kuya Bam 🙂
For sure the seminar went well. Great to see Rick Warren’s name and face there.
Attending any talk with someone like Rick Warren speaking must be one heck of a positive experience.
Hope you can join us next time, Sir Jason 🙂
This could have been very appealing, if it’s near in Cebu. Looking forward if you have an event here. While it is FREE I know many will grab this opportunity.
